New Fast-Radio-Burst Phenomenon Baffles Astronomers –“Reveals a Previously Unknown Hole in the Milky Galaxy”

Scientists detected the newest Fast radio burst, 5-millisecond intergalactic blips of radio waves, FRB 150215, on February 15, 2015 with the Parkes Telescope in Australia, but still don’t know the cause of it, or the 22 similar FRBs spotted on different occasions since 2007 that leave no trace, be they x-rays or visible light, or neutrinos. It’s predicted that around 2,000 of these mysterious phenomena are lighting up the Universe every single day.

The FRB shown at top of the page was detected from very-long-baseline radio interferometric observations using the European VLBI Network and the 305-m Arecibo telescope.
